Hi everyone! I’m so excited about today’s post! I’ve been testing out Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular CC Cream for over a week now and I got a good idea about how I feel about this product. So let’s hear it!
What It Claims
Okay, so let’s start off with what this products is and what it claims. This CC (color correcting) cream is made with certified organic products. It claims to be a “12 in 1 multi tasking CC cream for the ultimate in age defying, skin perfecting results” Here is a list of them:

- Evens skin tone
- Smooths uneven texture
- Creates a radiant, glowing complexion
- Rich in antioxidants
- Protects with mineral SPF 30
- Ultimate moisturizer
- Skin perfecting color
- Mineral tinted coverage
- No chemical sunscreen
- Non-nano natural sunscreen
My Skin Type
Before I go on with the demo I’d like to give you guys a little background about my skin and what I look for in a foundation, bb cream, cc cream, etc…
I have normal to oily skin. For the most part my skin is normal but will occasionally get oily in the t-zone. I have a few acne scars around my cheek and chin area and redness all over. Sigh…
Okay, so what I look for in a product for my base is something that is lightweight. Something that will not look or feel cakey, that is somewhere between dewy and matte. It has to be somewhat long wearing. I hate having to check up on my makeup throughout the day. So it has to be something that I can put on and forget about the rest of the day.
Demo & Review
This product I find to be very hydrating. It almost has the feel of a lip balm. Just a tad less oily. I use a dime size amount for the first layer.
I then dot it all over my face and use my hands to blend it in. I’ve tried using a brush and beauty blending sponge but the coverage of this product is so light that using anything other than your hands sheer it out way too much. So your hands are your bffs for this cc cream.
This CC Cream does a great job when it comes to evening out the skin tone. As you can see from the picture below, with one layer it does a nice job although you can still see some uneven skin tone around my mouth and chin area.
It does layer up nicely, but you do have to make sure to let the first layer dry and settle in before applying the second layer. Usually for the second layer I just apply it in the areas where I feel I need the most coverage which is around my chin and mouth area.
You have to set this product with a powder. Otherwise, it will move around throughout the day and might make your bronzer or blush look muddy. Nobody likes that look! Oh! And if you don’t powder, the product will crease up your under eye concealer and eye shadow, you’ve been warned.
Close ups after applying the rest of my makeup.
I also find that when I don’t powder, and even when I do, sometimes my face will feel a little tacky or sticky even a couple of hours after I apply it. Again, this is probably just because I don’t need so much hydration.
“So, Ana do you like it or not?!!”
Do I like it? Yes, I do. Do I think it is worth the $39 bucks I paid? Maybe. Will I purchase this again? Probably not.
Here is the thing, I think this product does what it claims to do. But it is just not what I am looking for. In other words, its not you, its me. 😉
This Product Will Work For: I think this product is perfect for people that are looking for light to medium coverage. It is perfect for all my dry skin type friends! If you have normal skin you might like it, or be able to make it work with powdering up. 🙂
Final Thoughts: This is a light to medium coverage cc cream, that needs to be set with powder. If you have oily skin, stay away. I repeat, stay away! It is so hydrating that it will make you look like a grease ball. I’m sorry. Its true. However, if you have normal to combination skin It leaves a dewy finish and it does leave you with a natural look, which I’m a fan of.
I really do like this product, I wish so bad that it worked better with my skin type, but it is just not happening for me. So, if you guys have any suggestions of any other base products I should try out please leave me a comment! I’ll be sure to check it out and maybe I’ll do another review.
On to the next beauty product!
Love you all!
